Get a Strong Bond

DOWSIL EA-3838 is a two-part, room-temperature vulcanising silicone adhesive, which can be used on various substrates and has a flexible fast cure speed. A Two-part alkoxy RTV silicone adhesive that provides Bond strengths in just 5 min (including mixing and assembly).

An Adhesive That Helps Increase Productivity & Reduce Carbon Footprint.

As we pursue new ways to increase sustainability, we can’t afford to compromise productivity. That’s why, for industries requiring adhesives, we’re excited to offer DOWSIL EA-3838, as it increases throughput while reducing energy consumption.

DOWSIL EA-3838  is a two-part alkoxy RTV silicone adhesive that provides a strong bond to a variety of clean substrates through room-temperature cure in just 5 minutes (including mixing and assembly), increasing processing speed. By bonding so quickly without the need for heat acceleration, this adhesive reduces the amount of energy required for it’s application. Especially useful for appliances, automotive electronics, lighting, aerospace applications, DOWSIL EA-3838 Fast Adhesive is for manufacturers interested in both sustainability and productivity.


DOWSIL EA-3838 Fast Adhesive has been developed to provide durable adhesive bonding and sealing for components which exhibit different thermal expansion rates, and/or where fast homogeneous cure throughout the adhesive cross section and an early adhesion development is needed. Can be used for various automotive and automotive electronics assembly applications, where a flexible strong adhesive bond is needed. DOWSIL EA-3838 Fast Adhesive is a perfect solution for appliances manufacturing, for bonding glass to metal, glass to painted metal or glass to plastic at ovens, refrigerators and small home appliances.
